THURSDAY, JUNE 6

PEDALPALOOZA KICKOFF 

[BIKES] In Portland, it’s always a good time to ride, but never more so than during this annual bonanza of all things bikey. The three-week extravaganza begins today with a parade—get some bling for you and your bike—and a party with music by Federale and Grandparents. Ride begins at 7 pm at Northeast 11th Avenue and Holladay Street. Party is at Branx, 320 SE 2nd Ave., 234-5683. 8:30 pm. Free.

INVASION!

[THEATER] The new Badass Theatre Company—founded by some of Portland’s top performers—presents its first production, an Obie-winning black comedy by Jonas Hassen Khemiri, which begins with a man recounting memories of a Lebanese uncle and spirals into a forceful but unusual meditation on Arab identity, language, racism and immigration. Miracle Theatre, 525 SE Stark St., 358-4660. 8 pm. $15-$20.

MIKAL CRONIN

[MUSIC] On MCII, Ty Segall’s touring bassist steps out on his own with an impressive set of splashy rockers, charged ballads and weeping acoustic janglers, and playing almost every instrument himself. Mississippi Studios, 3939 N Mississippi Ave., 288-3895. 9 pm. $10 advance, $12 day of show. 21+.


SATURDAY, JUNE 8


NEVER-NUDE BIKE RIDE

[JORTS] Not everyone likes riding bikes naked. Some people never like being naked at all. And others are just big fans of recently revived sitcom Arrested Development. For them, there’s the Never-Nude bike ride, a more modest alternative to all perv-friendly, clothing-optional Pedalpalooza rides. Literally dozens of never-nudes will gather in their jean cutoffs for a 2½-hour ride. Coe Circle, 3900 NE Glisan St., shift2bikes.org. 12:45–3:15 pm. Free.

DOLLY PARTON HOOT NIGHT

[MUSIC] With her rootsy origins, pop savvy and brilliant songwriting, the Mayor of Dollywood is a fitting role model for women’s arts organization Siren Nation, which puts together this annual tribute—featuring a diverse array of Portland performers—as a fundraiser for its yearly music and film festival. Alberta Rose Theatre, 3000 NE Alberta St., 719-6055. 9 pm. $10 advance, $12 day of show. Under 21 permitted with legal guardian.


SUNDAY, JUNE 9


MILK CARTON BOAT RACE

[BOATS] Despite what the name might bring to mind, this isn’t a race of single milk cartons—participants build their own human-size floats with nothing but milk cartons and jugs. A time-honored Rose Festival tradition, participants compete for trophies in design and racing categories. Westmoreland Park Casting Pond, Southeast McLoughlin and Bybee boulevards, rosefestival.org. 11 am. Free.
